The market is saturated with companies who falsify a product’s benefits or downplay the serious risks associated with it, ultimately leading to a number of drug recalls. Although they are required to perform quality testing to confirm a drug’s safety and effectiveness, some manufacturers cut corners. This can end up leading to consumer injuries.
